Liberal Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth are celebrating winning an award for the biggest increase in membership in the country.
So far this year local Liberal Democrats have increased their membership by nearly a 100 new members. They were awarded a prize for this by former Party Leader Lord Paddy Ashdown.
Cllr Michael Mullaney, Lib Dem parliamentary spokesman for Bosworth said "Local people were keen to support the work being done by local Lib Dems. We campaign hard on local issues, like saving Hinckley's Ambulance Station and work all year round in the community. New jobs are coming to our area through the Enterprise Zone at Mira on the A5 near Hinckley and the jobs coming with parcel delivery firm DPD to Sketchley Brook. After 26 years of David Tredinnick as our MP many local people are keen for a change to an MP who will campaign on the local issues of jobs and services."
Cllr Stuart Bray, Leader of Hinckley and Bosworth Council said, "People are keen to support the work locally of Lib Dems on Hinckley and Bosworth Council. We have frozen Council Tax, avoided compulsory redundancies, had no cuts to front line services and have one of the top ten lowest Council Taxes in the country."
